Do you ever give a pokemon a nickname based on another video game?

/topic For all you Tekken fans out there, made a competitive Ursaring and named it Kuma. Can't wait to try it online!

No one will ever understand what it's from without me telling them, but I name my Bulbasaur "Onion".

It's from Pikmin.

So you basically named your Ursaring "bear" in Japanese. Cool.

Many times.
Heck, I used to name all my Pokémon their element/highlight + (part of the species name)
ie Elec Chu, Ice Eon, etc. (I would use "mon", but, uhm... Yeah, I wouldn't, actually).

Not changing this sig until I have at least one Shiny version of each Eeveelution.
1/9 done.

I actually named it Kuma for the Tekken reference. Thanks for coming out though!

My Aeigislash is named Fi.

And when I hatch my shiny Honedge I'm going to name that one Ghirahim.

I named my Lucario "Jehuty." If I ever get a shiny, I'll name it "Anubis."

Also named Talonflame "Falco."
